    “Let’s Discuss It” is one of the Society’s most popular monthly workshops. It is a combination genealogy/technology discussion group led by a knowledgeable researcher or researchers. This month, we are honored to have TNGS Vice President, John Ware, as the facilitator for the two-hour discussion on research sites, technology,  current genealogy software programs, and probably a few other topics, as often happens in this interactive group. Come and join us! Bring your own topic of interest to share with others, or just come and soak up the knowledge from the presenter and other participants.
